    Welcoming, warm and unpretentious luxury

    Gorgeous setting and very comfortable and welcoming luxury. We stayed in the ‘basic’ double that had a double queen bed and all the luxuries you would expect. Really good stay and we would definitely come back again. Covid measures were pleasing around the hotel and we enjoyed the different dining options. Eating in the Pullman restaurant (Orient Express carriages) was absolutely delightful and Palmers bar and restaurant offered more affordable, every day meals. Definitely would recommend. Only thing that let it down was the breakfast. Lovely impressive dining room, silver service but the Irish cooked breakfast was very dry and bland. But it still was a fabulous stay and all the staff were very welcoming and happy to please.

  • 6.0.Good

    Disappointing for a 5 star hotel. Staff were most friendly and helpful. However management could deploy staff more efficiently. By times service tended to be slow and used glassware left on tables or one had to look for staff. More thorough sanitising of tables between guests would be reassuring. Yet there was an abundance of sanitiser bottles in all areas and wipes and small sanitiser bottle in bedrooms. This was a very helpful feature.

    Superb 5 star hotel. It has the beautiful elegance of a manner house but upgraded to the highest modern standards. The staff are incredible, so friendly and attentive. The food is out of this world. It was one of the best fine dining experiences in Ireland. I have visited a few 5 star hotels this week on my Staycation, and Glenlo is one of the top. I would highly recommend staying here.

    This is a great hotel, great staff, great food. However, the early morning noise from the ongoing construction was horrible.

    Magical Moments

    The whole place was lit up by Christmas decorations and trees inside and out. Very romantic place and very relaxing and just a stones throw away from Galway city. Lovely scenic grounds with a walk around the golf course. The hosts Troy and Baku are great for helping with your bags to and from your car and very friendly. There is a piano player on the night she is a fantastic player and singer. Very original pieces and jazzy player. The breakfast is scrumptious and plenty of food to eat. We both ate the omelette instead of a fry and had a fruit bowl instead of cereal for a change. The tea is tasty as its loose tea they use but they provide a filter for this. The rooms are quite spacious with quirky corners like hidden wardrobes and a free coffee/tea dock.
